Toilet Time

"I wish I could do this all day."  Melina's big hazel eyes peered up at me as she sat on the toilet.

"What? Sit there?" I said.

"Yep. All day." She leaned back against the porcelain and spread her arms as far as they could go. A slow smile crept across her face. She had the time to sit, and so she would.

Most people say that Melina is a mini-me, but in that moment, I found out exactly how she is just like her father.

I can totally visualize this. You should write a children's book even if it's a picture book... The Melina Chronicles. Life through her eyes...

That would be a great book. I think I'd need to ask her to help write it, though.
